Turmpalast, February 2012

The Turmpalast was notable for showing English Language films on all seven screens. It was located by the Eschenheimer tower in central Frankfurt.

The first cinema on the site opened on 21 September 1929 as the UFA-Film-Frankfurt Grand Palace with 1,245 seats.

Following war damage, it was rebuilt in the 1950s as the Turmpalast – “Tower Palace”, with stalls and circle seating. It was later subdivided into seven screens, playing films in their original English language, i.e. “Version Original”. It closed as the Cinestar Turmpalast on 9th June 2010 for demolition. The nearby Cinestar Metropolis now plays English language films on three screens.
